The Thermo Shandon Cytospin 3 was the first device in its class to employ low-speed centrifugal force for separating and depositing a monolayer of cells on slides while preserving the cellular integrity in the process. The Cytospin 3 comes with multi-position cytofunnels that prevent cell loss by their capability to load in a tilted position. The cytofunnels deposit cells in an upright position during operation. This cytocentrifuge has a host of safety features like sealed head and a microbiological cabinet which protect the user against the risk of aerosoling pathogenic samples. The cytoclips have an easy loading and unloading process without making contact with the sample.

The Cytospin 3 can accommodate different sizes of samples as per the requirement. Disposable chambers come in sizes ranging from 0.1ml to 6ml, to match the collection requirements across a variety of samples. This cytocentrifuge can spin up to 24 samples in 12 chambers at a time and also uses microtitre strips. Some of the additional features of the Cytospin 3 are a 9-program memory and programmable acceleration speeds (200-2,000 rpm). This versatile device can be used across a wide range of applications such as hematology, oncology, cytology, rheumatology, histology, virology, serology, microbiology, and immunochemistry.
